Professor Eli Dueker Writes: To Judge Coney Barrett from Your Transgender Sorority Vice President: Keep Your Pledge
Bard College professor Eli Dueker
Eli Dueker, associate professor of environmental and urban studies at Bard College, remembers Supreme Court judicial nominee Amy Coney Barrett as “whip-smart and incredibly kind,” back when they were Kappa Delta sorority sisters at Rhodes College in the 1990s. Professor Dueker has since come out as a transgender man and become an environmental microbiologist, devoting his professional life to addressing environmental racism in the United States. As Coney Barrett faces a contentious nomination process to the Supreme Court, Professor Dueker questions her commitment to the ideals they pledged to at Kappa Delta: integrity, honor, and uplifting of other women.
